GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Surface 1
You start in a small clearing in the the snow. Bond begins this mission with an additional weapon: a Sniper Rifle. However, it doesn’t really matter, as it’s easy to acquire one from the enemies on this level.
Head forward along the pathway and take out the guards you find there. They’re easy enough to take out with your PP7. As you approach a junction there’ll be a cabin either side. Head into the one on the right to grab some Grenade Rounds. The cabin on the left is locked – remember the location of this cabin for later.
Head back to the junction and continue along the path you were previously following. As you move closer to the satellite dish in the distance more enemies will come out of nowhere. However, they’re pretty easy to snipe.
You’ll soon see yet another cabin on the right of the path. Inside is a guy in a brown uniform. He’s holding a Large Key – this will open the previously locked cabin. You can also find the Grenade Launcher here.
If you’re playing on Secret Agent or 00 Agent, you should run back to the locked cabin. Head inside and grab the Safe Key (Objective B: Completed). Playing on Agent? Ignore this.
Head towards the satellite dish in the distance. Head inside the building and climb the stairs. Ignore the first door and go through the one straight ahead. Walk up to the computer an activate it to power down the satellite (Objective A: Completed).
If you’re playing on Agent difficulty, leave the building and head around the back of the building. You’ll soon reach a small building with a ladder to the roof. Shoot the locks off the grate with your PP7, and
then jump down the shaft (Objective B: Completed). If you’re playing on Secret Agent or 00 Agent, however…

Head out of the building and take a left. You should find a little out of the way passage. Follow it into the woods.
Ahead will be some cabins surrounded by a fence. Run inside and open the door to the cabin on the left. Here you’ll find a safe. Use the Safe Key and you’ll obtain the Building Plans (Objective C: Completed). Exit back the way you came.
That’s the only additional distraction, so head left until you reach the ventilation shaft. Shoot off the locks and jump in (Objective D: Completed).
